i just purchased on of these and used it last weekend on a drift dive to 90 feet, and i loved it. feels great and the back inflate bladder allows you to maintain a good streamline swim. plenty of metal ring to clip all necessary equipment. simple weight system, just drop a couple of weights in the rear mount pouch and you're ready to go. overall great bc.

Overall this BCD is lightweight and easy to dive with. The dump valves on the back are sometimes tricky to find quickly. The tank straps aren't that adjustable, the top strap can't really be moved to another postition, thus the tank sits a little high and the first stage can hit the back of your head sometimes. Not many pockets, just two, and they are set a little to far back for my likeing, but I solved this problem buy getting the zeagle sport utility pocket. It easlily connects to the bcd.
It's a really well made BCD and I especially love that you can disconect the inflator and hook a hose up to the bcd to flush the bladder. Even though it isn't weight intergrated the trim pouches on the back make things easier. I bought zeagles diver utility kit and it easily fits on my shoulder strap, giving me quick access to my knife and scissors.
As a first BCD this was a good choice, plus the price can't be beat, the lowest on the web that I found and I looked almost everywhere.

Comments about Zeagle Scout BCD:

I bought this because I was a new diver buying all my gear & this was cheap. Since it was the only one I ever used, I didn't know it was holding me back as a diver. The biggest problem is that there is no way to keep the tank from shifting its weight side to side on your back, so you need to swim with your hands to keep from rolling in whichever direction the tank shifts. The cummerbund is awkward, always getting wedged behind your back when you put the BCD on, and with the weight of your tank, it is very hard to bring to the front. Those of you who like to use a weight belt won't mind the lack of integrated weight pockets.

      great adjustable BCD. you can change the wing if it's necessary, but it works great for me (warm and recreational diving). the product fits me just fine (I'm 5'11", 65KG). Weight pockets can fit up to 8KG.

      Overall it's an awesome product.

          Stefano D  Is the Scout BCD part of Zeagle's "modular" line? My fit requirements have me in a Medium shoulder, but a Small waist. I cannot determine if this particular BCD supports customized sizing.
          MICHAEL G  I have had no problem adjusting the shoulder or waist . Even after losing 60 pounds the unit fits perfect.
